Study Dates & Vintage Purses



Apologies for my sporadic posting the past few weeks; I've been on a terrific roll with my online/distance coursework. I'm hoping to get it done as fast as I possibly can so I have more time for the wonderful world of blogging :) 


That being said, I thought I'd show you a more casual look, the type I'm apt to wear when leaving the house to study. Whether it be the library, a coffee shop, or visiting my German tutor, I'm always a fan of dressing up a little while maintaining a level of comfortability. This particular evening I chose a blue chiffon American Apparel skirt & oversized top from Zara (with sleeves rolled up). When choosing an outfit to study in I don't tend to wear much dangly jewellery, as it drives me crazy when trying to focus. Instead I wore my favourite nerdy Ray Ban glasses (they make me feel smart and help me see, win win ;), a vintage silver sequin/beaded shoulder bag from my Grandmother, & an older pair of pointy-toe heels I recently dug out of the depths of my closet. Not a full-fledged outfit shoot by any means, just a couple quick shots on a study break! 


Hope everyone's week is going well! Thanks for reading :)

  1. It's cute! I like glasses. I have a pair, but mine are fake. I've had LASIK. Cute vintage, too!

  2. I LOVE how you still dress up even for a casual study day.. this look is perfection! Also, I'm really loving your glasses -- I've been meaning to get a similar pair forever.. maybe when I finally do, it'll encourage me to wear my contacts less (I never leave the house with glasses) xo
